Dr. Powell's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Powell "Dr. Powell is a 1986 graduate of the University of Mississippi Medical Center School of Dentistry. He engaged in private practice on the Mississippi Gulf Coast until his home and office were destroyed by Hurricane Katrina in August of 2005. After Katrina, Dr. Powell accepted an appointment as an Assistant Professor at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center College of Dentistry, where he taught Operative Dentistry, Removable Prosthodontics and Fixed Prosthodontics. While at UT he earned the academic rank of Associate Professor and was the President of the Committee of Faculty (the faculty governance organization for the dental school) and as president of the Memphis section of the American Association for Dental Research. In the summer of 2011, he accepted an appointment at Roseman University of Health Sciences College of Dental medicine and was instrumental in the start-up of this new dental school in Salt Lake City, Utah area. He was the Director of Primary Dental Care, and developed the school's curriculum in ethics and professionalism. While at Roseman, he earned a Masters of Science in Healthcare Ethics from Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska. Wanting to return to the mid-south, in September of 2014 Dr. Powell purchased Desoto Dental in Southaven and changed the name to Desoto Dental Services. Dr. Powell is a member of the American Dental Association, the Mississippi Dental Association, the American College of Dentists, the Pierre Fauchard Academy and Omicron Kappa Upsilon Dental Honor Society. He has served as the President of the Mississippi Dental Association, the Mississippi Section of the American College of Dentists, and as Chairman of the Mississippi Dental Political Action Team. He also served as an associate editor of the Mississippi Dental Association Journal. Dr. Powell has given presentations on restorative dental techniques, dental adhesive strengths, disaster preparedness, and dental ethics in San Francisco, California; Jackson, Mississippi; Biloxi, Mississippi; Memphis, Tennessee; Albany, New York; Miami, Florida; and South Jordan, Utah. In addition to private practice at Desoto Dental Services Monday - Thursday, Dr. Powell provides dental care to inmates at one of the state's correctional facilities on Fridays and Saturdays. He presently resides in Southaven, Mississippi with his wife Laura, a 3rd grade teacher at Sacred Heart School. He and Laura enjoy college athletic events, walking in the neighborhood, hiking in the mountains, and flying. They have four children and six grandchildren on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, in Denver, Colorado, and in the Nashville, Tennessee area."
